Why choose solar panels?

Aside from the impact of cutting your household’s carbon footprint by tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions a year, solar units can drastically reduce your electricity bill in two distinct ways. Firstly, by generating your own electricity from the solar panels you reduce the electricity you need to buy from your power provider. Secondly, any excess “Green” electricity your system produces is sold back to the power provider. These two benefits mean many households will be able to reduce their electricity bill significantly. 

Another often overlooked benefit is that the solar units increase both the energy rating and value of your house.

How much roof space is required?

The amount of roof space required depends on the size of the system installed. For example, a 1.5Kw system requires about 12m2 of roof space. This should be on an un-shaded and preferably a north-facing part of the roof. The system is modular and can therefore be arranged in a way that best suits the roof. Learn More>

Is it possible to increase the size of a solar PV system in the future?

This depends on your roof space and the size of the inverter. If you have sufficient roof space and additional capacity in the inverter you could increase the size of your system. Or you could add a second system to your roof. Please note: At this time, the solar Feed In Tariff  in each state have limits on the system size which to they apply. Increasing the size of an existing solar power system could affect your eligibility for a Feed-in Tariff. Learn More>

How will I use the electricity collected from my solar system?

The electricity collected from the solar system panel is converted from direct current (DC) to 240V alternating current (AC) through the inverter. Once it has been converted into AC it is then fed back into your house or into the electricity grid. The credits you receive from your power will depend on your state’s FIT (Feed in Tariff).
